Here's the guy who will be playing The Flash

The CW has chosen its next superhero desktop wallpaper, selecting Glee star Grant Gustin to take over the role of The Flash that, as previously reported, will be set up for a potential spinoff on the upcoming season of Arrow. Grant Gustin—who already has a perfectly good comic-book alter ego name—will play Barry Allen, who enters the Arrow’s world as an ordinary, everyday police forensic investigator who looks like he’s all of 16, as he delves into a series of robberies that could be connected to a tragedy in his past. In a meta twist, this Flash is described as an Arrow-obsessed “comic book fan boy,” suggesting the first episode of his new series will see him on the Internet, complaining that some kid from Glee is playing The Flash.
